Mexican Stuffed Green Peppers

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Izzy The Terrible

No, we didn't stuff them with Mexicans, but you'll be pleased to know that this is a healthy carb recipe. No rice here! This recipe was created to use up extra taco meat, and it turned out amazing. Super easy, and my husband immediately asked me to add it to our 'favorite' list.

March 24th. I made this and Recipe #159900 for dinner. I, sadly, forgot to season the meat. But we still liked it. I will be making this again. And I will season my meat next time. I made this for Spring PAC 2011.

My DH took this to lunch the next day. Five people stopped to tell him how good it looked and smelled. I think I know what I'm making for his next pot luck.
